On September 26, 2017, Entercom announced a divestment of three stations (KSOQ-FM, WGGI, and KSWD) to the Educational Media Foundation as part of its merger with CBS Radio to comply with FCC ownership rules in the Wilkes Barre market; the FCC approved the sale of all three stations on November 2nd.[6] The announcement stated that upon the closing of the acquisition, new owner Educational Media Foundation (EMF) would flip WGGI 95.9 to its K-LOVE network which airs Christian Contemporary Music but parent station WGGY would remain unchanged.[7] EMF changed WGGI's call letters to WKBP on November 16th.[8] Current shows and DJ's include The Doc Show with Jessie - Doc Medek & Jessie Roberts, Justin Taylor, Crockett, and Michael D.
